"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2015." 
So I was warned about three but in case you were wondering the sass is real. Very real. In fact, I mentioned this in your 2nd portrait but it's worth mentioning again because that face. We're also obsessed with "tatoons" around here, especially those of the ninja turtle variety. 

GLOW AWAY

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Transitioning Lucas into his big boy bed was a very big deal for all involved. I may have cried the first few nights (my baby!) and Lucas, although excited, would frequently get up in the middle of the night yelling for either Ivan or I. Although we have come a long way and I consider Lucas to be a big boy champ (!!) we still have nights where he wakes up frightened at some ungodly hour calling for us. I was super stoked to try Glow Away with Lucas. It's the absolute cutest set and it comes with a story book and coordinating duvet cover. The book illustrations are adorable and the story is even better - a cute, furry kiddo Boo, who casts a magical spell to protect his buddy Sam from monsters under the bed! Lucas absolutely loves it and we have been reading it every night.  The duvet glows in the dark and when the lights are turned off the magic spell appears. Lucas just about lost it when he saw this - "WOW!!!!". The Glow Away book has become such a fun part of our bedtime routine and Lucas is at such a rad age that spells and magic really ignite his imagination. You can order your set here and ps - not only is this amazing for the kiddos it's also impeccably made, super soft and aesthetically beautiful. Win win!

After this baking session (and the huge mess ;) Lucas has been asking to "make a cake!" every day. 

SNOW!

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

On the first and only legit snow day so far this winter I bundled the kid up and we headed out for an afternoon date - just me and him. We made our way to our local park and it was empty! You have no idea what a rarity this. Add to this the magic of a winter wonderland and we were in heaven. An entire park to ourselves and endless amounts of clean, fresh snow. Lucas dubbed it "our island" and we spent one of the best afternoons we've had in a while playing, laughing, and just being free. We came home, stripped down, and took a 3 hour nap. I'm so ready to say see ya to Winter but afternoons like these? I'll take 100 more please.

"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week in 2015." 

I've been behind on posting but better late than never! I went back and forth on starting this project again but decided to go for it. It is just so special to look through Lucas's portraits from 2014 and see how much he grew and changed each week - little changes that seem to go unnoticed with life, busy schedules..how sweet is is to look at these photographs and just study his face and how much he transformed into a little boy. I'm looking forward to challenging myself and capturing my guy this year. Are you starting the 52 project? If so I'd love to check your portraits out! Good luck my fellow mamas and happy snapping.

Three. You are full of SASS. Here you are explaining to me why you shouldn't be put in a time out. 

MAMA AND LEÓN WEAR

Monday, January 05, 2015


The weather was unseasonably warm last weekend which meant lots of layers to take on and off and a trip to Brooklyn. I got the chance to wear my new favorite wardrobe staple and rock it for a while sans jacket. Heavenly! I had been drooling over For Love and Lemons Knitz Collection for months and when they sent me their Solstice Sweater I was in sweater love! I mean. Sweater. Perfection. Will Ivan find it acceptable if I wear it everyday? Here's hoping. You can head over to Babiekins to see a few more photos.

Lucas was dressed in head to toe cute (yes, cute) in his Duck Egg Republic hoodie and trousers. This insanely adorable company is based in Poland and is full of classic styles perfect for both boys and girls. I love the simple, modern designs and the fact that I can easily transition the pieces for Spring. And yes, I'm ready for you warm weather! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2015! You're here! 

2014 was filled with love and so many blessings for my family. We moved into a new apartment, our boy turned three and said goodbye to his beloved pacifier, we made it through potty training, and my love and I both turned thirty - THIRTY! Throughout every up (and down) we persevered and kicked 2014's ass. 

I'm so looking forward to see what 2015 will bring. Fulfilling goals career wise, spending time with my loved ones, traveling, and cultivating an all around fabulous year. May 2015 be a great one for all of you! xx
